First for the good news:Andy Pettitte went through his bullpen session without a problem yesterday and proclaimed himself “good to go” for his start Friday in Toronto. “Everything is where I want it,” said Pettitte, who was scratched over the weekend after suffering back spasms. “They want to see how I feel after [the bullpen]. Hopefully there’s no tightness tomorrow after I worked it as hard as I did today.” Pettitte said he felt fine during the 35-40 pitch session yesterday, but pitching coach Larry Rothschild noted his last bullpen went well in Cleveland and his back stiffened later. “It was a good decision, so I don’t second guess it,” Pettitte said of being pushed back. “I hope I go Friday and it’s not that big of an issue.”And now the bad:Derek Jeter still is trying to rehabilitate his injured ankle and is not close to appearing in rehab games, making a return in early May a remote possibility at best. After taking the weekend off to rest his ankle, Jeter has lightened his workload in Tampa as he tries to manage his recovery. The New York Yankees have said when Jeter is finally ready to play in games, he will need close to a full spring training before he will be prepared to return to the majors.

To avoid future couch injuries, Andy Pettitte needs to rethink his living room

Andy Pettitte is out until Friday.  He hurt his back getting off the couch.Listen: I don't know goulash about pitching.

May 1 return unlikely for Jeter

Alex Rodriguez just might have a serious problem

Alex Rodrgiuez is a strange individual. At least, that’s how we see him from the prizm of our TV sets, computer monitors, and other forms of media. He seems socially awkward, aloof, deceptive, and narcistic. From the little we really know about him, it all seems odd. He reportedly had a centaur of himself in his home, he allows odd photographs to be taken, he allegedly had clubhouse...
